New Tools for Design Engineers of Optics and Precision Mechanical Systems
PIRest is a new and unique piezo technology, where the actuator keeps its expansion without a permanently applied voltage. This leads to a simple set-and-forget alignment method without limitation of the lifetime of the actuator.
Generating Ultrasonic Oscillation with Battery Power
The post explains, why this particular combination of resonant operation and low voltage is so special. Generating ultrasonic oscillation from battery power is useful for mobile measuring devices or medical devices. Atomizers for asthma therapy or so-called ultrasonic scalpels in eye surgery are good examples of this.
